Startup application DSentry.exe launches your software DVD player when a DVD is inserted.

Some report on the Internet says that DSentry.exe is an anti-spyware from Dell. Seems that after Dell found out certain applications being installed from DVD's would report back information about what customers were watching, they decided to implement an anti-spyware service.

So you should keep DSentry.exe a startup application.
